Armour Apartments escape tear down

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Board of Zoning Adjustment voted Tuesday to uphold a decision made by the historic preservation commission back in September.

That decision prevents four historic buildings along Armour Boulevard from being demolished.

Mac Property, the owners, wanted to get rid of them because it would cost too much to renovate. But after two hours, the board ruled to keep the buildings.

"For now, the buildings will be saved for at least three years according to city ordinance," Amanda Crawley with the Old Hyde Park Neighborhood Association said.
